As a new year began, the 
college around us was changing. 


With the desire to become a 

university, Fairmont State College 

embarked on many changes in 2002- 

2003 to see that vision come to pass. 

Some of the most visible changes 

have already begun. With the new 

logo displayed in full force, we saw 

flags, falcons, and columns displayed 


From a bird's eye view, the 

physical structure of FSC was in an 

ever-changing process. The 

destruction of Bryant Street pushed 

many families and students out of 

their homes, and the one way in and 

out of East Garden Lane made the 

newly acquired College Park 

apartments more accessible to 


Parking, again, was a major 

issue with the removal of spaces to 
4 work on the beginning phases of the 
i^ new parking garage, which broke 
* : ground on November 20, 2002. The 

** Dining Hall destruction began in

President's house was another up 

and coming event.

Along with the controversial

move again, this time to Market

From the outside looking in, 
the whole campus appeared to be in 
shambles, but in order for FSC to

tmosphere, changes needed to be 

Internally, we also experienced 
some major changes. With an 
approximate 13% budget cut across 
"le board, we were forced to adjust 
ne of our spending procedures. 
On a positive note, FSC invited 
in two new department chairs to the 
Z faculty. Dr. Ravic Ringlavin 
jepted the role as the School of 
Education Chair and Dr. Peter Lach 
headed up the School of Fine Arts. 

The changes won't stop there.

s another year began on the hill, we 
saw many signs of change, but there 
were still many traditions that 
continued on. Students invaded campus 
in August for Freshman Orientation and 
enjoyed the popular sounds of The Clarks. A time 
of remembrance took place on September 11th, 2002 
with a day of prayer and a tree planting ceremony 
The sun shined bright for the annual Activities Fair 

and Alcohol, Substance Abuse and Sexuality 

Awareness Week went off without a hitch. Many 

famous faces came to share knowledge as the 

"Celebration of Ideas" continued throughout the year. 

As all of the new changes kept students' heads 

spinning, many things remained the same: early 

morning classes, late night events and one common 

goal... Graduation.

ver 100 students gave up their last 
week of summer to prepare for the 
incoming freshmen at FSC. The 
buses boarded on August 14 and the 
freshman counselors headed towards 
Jackson's Mill, in Weston, WV. The 
students stayed in cabins and meals 
were served three times a day. While 
at camp many activities occurred 
which led to a wonderful bonding 

"Freshman counseling was a 
good experience for me as well as 
many others. We as counselors knew 
how hard the adjustment was from 
high school to college and tried to 
make it easier on the new students 
and incoming freshmen," said Susan 

During this week-long 
workshop, West Virginia Secretary of 
State Joe Manchin served as a guest 
speaker. Many of the days were 
spent gathering information on what 
to do when the freshmen arrive on 
campus. Other activities included a 
variety show, where funny skits were 
performed; and the awareness skits, 

where groups were chosen to deliver 
serious topics such as alcohol abuse 
and date rape. 

Carrie Hupp said, "Freshman 
Orientation camp was the best camp 
I've been to. It was truly a life- 
changing experience." 

Following the week at camp, 
the counselors returned to FSC to 
help greet the incoming freshmen at 
orientation, which took place August 

Following typical orientation 
procedures, incoming students not 
only got to participate in a dance, but 
were also welcomed in with a live 
concert by "The Clarks." Josh 
Schrader said, "Participating in 
Freshman Orientation is definitely a 
great way to meet new people and 
gain friends for life." 

This year's orientation was 
different from all the others because it 
was dedicated to freshman counselor 
Erin Dillion. During the summer, 
Dillion passed away, but her 
memories and charisma will stay at 
FSC forever.

SC's annual Activities Fair was held 
outside of the Education Building on 
September 17. The Activities Fair is a 
long-time tradition at FSC, geared towards 
introducing students to campus clubs, 
sororities, fraternities, and organizations. 
This year's fair was well represented by 
both organizations and visiting students 
alike. The fair started at 11 am and ran 
throughout the day. Special prizes were 
given away and students who visited three 
booths around noon were offered free 
pizza for lunch. 

Student Affairs coordinator Laurie 
Johnston said, "This was a quiet day 
where all of the students came out to 
interact. There were about 32 
organizations that participated and some 
of the booths were very elaborate. I know 
that the Student Government was very 

This year's fair was quite different 
from the previous year's fair, which was 
held on September 11, 2001. 

Johnston continued, "Last year's 
fair was held on Sept. 1 1 , so not many 
students came out. Everyone was focused 
on what was going on around the country. 
Those of us who were in attendance just 
sat around and listened to the radio. This 

year's fair definitely had a more upbeat 

For this reason, many reflected 
that attendance and participation 
seemed to double. 

Sigma Tau Gamma president 
Jack Williams said, "It's good to see 
more participation than in the past. It 
makes the fair much more interesting." 

The clubs in attendance came 
out to inform, as well as recruit new 

Delta Zeta sophomore Jill 
Mehaulic said, "DZ really wants to get 
people involved and give students a 
chance to meet. On this beautiful day, 
we are just trying to encourage people to 
become active." 

Contessa Hill, a member of the 
Black Student Union, said, "The Activities 
Fair is a wonderful way to learn about 
our campus. It is important for students 
to know what is going on in their school." 

Williams continued, "The groups 
don't always get a chance to interact 
with one another. Year after year, this 
fair provides a chance for us to socialize 
with all of the different organizations 
and keep abreast of current activities."

n the day of September 1 1 , 2002, everyone 
around the globe seemed to have their own 
special way to pay tribute to the events and 
tragic deaths that occurred just one year ago. 
Israel lit candles and made a memorial in the 
middle of the capital. England flew an 
American flag over Buckingham Palace. 
Even Australia had citizens dressed in red, 
white, and blue, coming together to form the 
outline of an American flag. Everyone wanted 
to be a part of the memorial that was being 
held in the United States where citizens 
flocked to New York City's Ground Zero, the 
Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pa. September 
1 1 was a time to remember, a time to reflect, 
and mostly a time to come together in 
agreement that the future belongs to America. 
Fairmont State College presented its 
own memorial ceremony in tribute to the 
heroes and events of September 1 1 . Held 
outside of the Education Building, several 
dignitaries were on hand, including FSC 
president Daniel Bradley. The ceremony was 
opened by Student Government president 
Jason Raimey. He said, "We are all now 
stronger as Americans. The events of the 
past year have made us ask ourselves, 'What 
does it mean to be an American?'" Students 
were told to express their feelings with others 
in an attempt to ease pain and become united 
in other fronts as well. Reverend Richard 

By Brandy Garcia 

Bowyer said, "We are in the midst of a 
difficult and challenging time. Having 
personally seen the destruction and sights 
in New York City, I encourage us all to think 
deeply and respond compassionately." 

Students looking for a religious 
outlet participated in the moment of 
silence, as well as the prayer offered by 
Father Jude Molnar.The moving speech 
urged listeners to "be encouraged to live in 
peace with one another." Father Molnar also 
said, "What happened in New York and the 
Pentagon was a wake-up call to everyone. 
These tragedies were a consequence of 
political mishaps, religious fundamentalism, 
and terrorism." Bowyer echoed these 
sentiments: "We will hear of wars and 
rumors of wars. There are terrorist acts all 
around the globe. America needs to be 

The ceremony was closed with the 
traditional playing of taps by FSC band 
students Justin Prickett and David Burger. 
This moving finale brought many students 
to tears and helped to remind that we are 
more than Falcons, we are Americans. May 
the events that transpired one year ago 
continue to affect the way we think, act, 
and respond. 




ero Tolerance was the theme for 
Alcohol, Sexuality, and Drug 
Awareness Week at FSC. Many 
fun activities took place throughout 
the week. The week was filled with 
activities to show that students can 
have fun without drugs and alcohol, 
and to recognize different aspects 
and characteristics of sexuality. 
This week always brings together 
many ideas and challenging 

The week began with 
speaker Cleve Jones, sponsored by 
the Delta Zeta sorority. He spoke 
about the AIDS quilt, how it was 
started, and how it is a continuing 
reminder of those who have died 
from AIDS. The quilt is now large 
enough to cover 60 football fields, 
and is the largest memorial to those 
who have died from AIDS. 

There was an information 
booth set up in the Student Union 
that provided helpful information on 
everything from how to quit 
smoking to preventing drug abuse. 
The event was sponsored by Alpha 
Sigma Tau. It was a great 
opportunity to get a better 
understanding and more knowledge 
about questionable subjects. 

"BYOB," or "Bring Your Own 
Banana," was sponsored by the 
Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority. 

Members spent the afternoon 
scooping out ice cream and 
making sundaes to promote the 
idea of having fun without alcohol. 

Sigma Tau Gamma brought 
"The FSC Story" to campus, which 
detailed Pruntytown inmates' 
stories of what happened to them 
because of drugs and alcohol. 
The inmates encouraged students 
to be careful of their choices with 
drugs and alcohol because it can 
have a detrimental effect for the 
rest of students' lives. 

"The Third Decade of HIV: 
AIDS Stories from the Frontline of 
the Battle" was presented by 
speaker Jay Adams. Panels from 
the Aids memorial quilt were 
displayed before and after the 

The final event of the week 
was the Mix-Off. As students 
entered Colebank Gym, music 
blared as DJ Lacy Neff got the 
crowd ready for the event. Each 
organization that participated had a 
booth set up with a homemade 
nonalcoholic beverage. People 
were delighted with eclectic tastes 
ranging from pineapple flavor to 
mint and chocolate.

he sounds of exuberant cheers, clapping, music, 
the thud of bodies hitting the mat, shuffling cards 
and the splat of cream pies filled the gym in 
Colebank Hall, November 13, as the annual 
Homecoming Thuse combined with a carnival. 
Why a carnival? 

"We wanted to give students a larger 
variety of activities to look forward to during 
homecoming week," said Student Government 
organizer and officer, Chris Shamblin. 

First up, the assembled student 
organizations showed their school spirit with 
skits and cheers in an effort to win the coveted 
spirit stick. The FSC cheerleaders started the 
show off right, doing some of their popular 
cheers. They were then joined by the Tau Beta 
lota fraternity, who helped with some of the 
cheerleaders' high flying moves. Next, the Delta 
Xi Omicron sorority and the Phi Sigma Phi 
fraternity wowed the crowd with their rendition of 
Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back." Incidentally, the 
guys from Phi Sig were decked out in drag. The 
Alpha Sigma Tau sorority performed a cheer. 
"It's all about pride," they chanted as they 
proclaimed their pride in FSC. Delta Zeta and 
Sigma Tau Gamma also cheered and danced for 
the crowd. But it was the Black Student Union 
who won the night and the coveted Spirit Stick 
with their 3-woman step show. Cries of "FSC in 
my heart" won over hearts of judges and the 
crowd as well. The applause was thunderous 
when the judges' decision was announce. "It 
was a great first ever Spirit Stick win," said Carla 
Mitchell, one third of the step team. 

After the thuse, the carnival went into 
full swing. The student organizations present 
put together different games that could be 
played for prizes. The Black Student Union 
offered a dart game for a Blow-Pop prize. "We're 
looking forward to an FSC win on Saturday," said 
Carla Mitchell. Sigma Sigma Sigma and Tau 
Kappa Epsilon invited people to bob for apples. 
"This is a good way for organizations to show 
pride and have fun at the same time," said 
Andrea Gattens, a Sigma Sigma Sigma sister. 
Kappa Delta Pi offered a "candle shootout". 
Participants attempted to put out a candle with 
the stream from a small water pistol. Delta Zeta 
and Phi Sigma Phi both offered a pie-tossing 
booth. Residence Life and the Honors Program 
both had variations on the ring toss for prizes of 
cans or bottles of soda. 

Two of the more innovative and unusual 
booths came from organizations based in 
Wallman Hall. The FSC marching band and 
Kappa Kappa Psi got into the school spirit by 

"whacking the falcon." These guys put 
together a wooden contraption that when you 
smack one end with a rubber mallet, a rubber 
chicken or "faicon" flies through the air. If the 
falcon landed in one of the upturned snare 
drums, you get a bag of candy. Kappa Kappa 
Psi member Chris Lewis, who was manning 
the booth, proudly announced that it was 
possible to whack the falcon all the way to the 
ceiling; he should know, he's the guy who did 

CAOS also left the sanctity of 
Wallman Hall for the fun. Their booth offered 
"Tossing Beanbags at Pennywise the Clown, 
Win or Lose Your Arm." A large piece of 
cardboard was set up. Holes were cut out for 
the patrons to toss beanbags through and the 
entire contraption was decorated with pictures 
of Tim Curry as Pennywise the Clown, the 
villain from Stephen King's bestseller and the 
movie of the same name, "It." Sara Bean and 
Kelly Sipes, creators of the game, said they 
wanted to create a more adult version of the 
beanbag game, since no children would be 
present. CAOS president Neil Brozik said, 
"This has become a wild, great time since the 
last time most of us attended a thuse." 

In addition to all the fun provided by 
the student organizations, student government 
provided several activities to supplement the 
fun. Free hot dogs, chips and drinks were 
offered, sumo wrestling, an air-filled boxing 
cage, complete with big boxing gloves and 
huge inflatable helmets, wax hand molds and 
American Gladiators-style jousting entertained 
the crowd. "The jousting is really awesome," 
said Josh Sherman, president of the Honors 
Association. The wax hand molds proved to 
be a hit, if the line to dip your hand in melted 
wax was any indication. 

Another activity sponsored by Student 
Government was the comedy and magic of 
Dewayne Hill. One of the more popular tables 
at the carnival, Hill entertained many with his 
fast mouth and his even faster hands. As Hill 
completed each card trick, he was met with 
shocked gasps, dropped jaws and the 
inevitable cry "How did you do that?!" His 
response: "Very well." 

Relaxed and fun seemed to be the 
order of the night. Shamblin expressed 
Student Government's fears that the crowd 
would be small due to the cold, rainy weather. 
"We were really worried, but it's really been 


Comedy Night Homecoming 2002 
Monday. November 1 1 
8:00 PM Turley Ballroom 





omecoming Week at FSC is known for 
bringing a huge amount of pride, spirit, and 
fun. This year seemed to be no different. 
Festivities kicked off the 2002 FSC 
Homecoming, "Falcons-It's all about pride" 
with the annual candidates' dinner catered by 
the Dining Hall and Aladdin Foodservices on 

"If I win I will throw a huge party in 
celebration," said 2002 Homecoming King 
candidate TJ Howard, who was nominated by 
Residence Life. 

Before the candidates munched down 
on the delicious food, FSC first lady Cheri 
Bradley said grace and talked about how 
lucky the candidates were to represent not 
only themselves but also their school. 

That same night Homecoming Week 
rolled right along with funnyman Brad Lowery 
taking to the stage of the Turley Center 
Ballroom. In the past, names such as Marty 
Putz and Bobcat Goldthwait have graced 
campus with their hilarious stand-up acts. 
With inspirations such as Bill Cosby and 
Richard Pryor, Lowery has done stand-up for 
the past 18 years. 

"I told my ex-wife I wanted to be 
someone one day; I wanted to make her 
jealous," said Lowery in a backstage 
interview after the show. "After that every 
time she saw me on TV, she took me to 

The two-hour show kept the crowd of 
about 200 laughing every minute of the way. 

"I thought the show was great; he had 
me laughing all night long," said freshman 
Emily Wymer. "I hope they have guys as 
funny as him in the future." 

By Brad Fox 

Originally from Illinois, Lowery now 
resides in Brooklyn, New York. Comedians 
tend to have block booking, unlike bands 
where they will travel to a city that is close 
to the city they played in before, whereas 
comedians might have a show in Fairmont 
one night then have to fly to Boulder, 
Colorado for a show the next day. 

"I liked the travel when I was 
younger but as I get older and have a 
family I don't really like it as much," said 

Lowery's approach to stand-up is 
an act that is fresh and mostly clean. 
Throughout the night Lowery used jokes 
that made the crowd roll. From terrorists to 
his grandfather's funeral, it was all joked 

"I choose to be clean and refresh 
my act as much as I can," said Lowery. 
"Last week I was doing BET's Comic View 
and I was the only person not to give a joke 
about R. Kelly." 

Lowery has worked with many 
famous comedians in the past and has 
based a lot of his jokes on others. 

"Sinbad, Jerry Seinfeld, and 
Tommy Davidson all treat you like real 
people," said Lowery. 

After the show Lowery stuck 
around, signing a few autographs and 
shaking some hands. 

"I believe his humor was very good 
and his original act reached the different 
personalities of the crowd," said sophomore 
Brian Williams.

n a cold night in November, the 
streets of downtown Fairmont were 
crowded with people, floats, and cars. 
The annual Homecoming Parade was 
about to begin. With the chaotic line- 
up and many hours of time and effort 
put into floats, students anticipated 
Saturday's football game halftime for 
the announcement of who won the 
float. The theme for Homecoming 
was "Falcons-It's All About Pride". 
The floats could have pride 
incorporated with the USA, the 
organization, or FSC. The floats 
showcased a variety of all these 
ideas. Alpha Sigma Tau used a ship 
with sailors, and displayed the 
anchor, their symbol of organizational 
pride. Black Student Union had a 
football field and the Spirit Stick to 
show their accomplishments. CAOS 
designed a creative medieval float, 
while Phi Sigma Phi and Delta Xi 
Omicron lit up the night with FSC 
pride letters. "The Ballroom Falcons 

are on the beat," proclaimed the 
Dancing Falcons' float. There were 
a wide variety of floats, but only one 
could win first place. 

On Saturday, during the 
game, the winners were 
announced. Delta Zeta and Sigma 
Tau Gamma won first place with 
their USA/FSC pride. They had the 
Statue of Liberty, Uncle Sam, a 
police officer with the American flag, 
and an FSC flag that stole the 
judges' hearts. Coming in second 
place were Sigma Sigma Sigma 
and Tau Kappa Epsilon showing 
their organizational pride with large 
Greek letters and a miniature replica 
of Hardway Hall. 

There were many hours of 
thought and time put into the floats 
to display the participants' pride on 
one night. The tradition continued 
this year and even on that cold night 
in November, everyone had a blast 
displaying their FSC pride. 


Eiiicl the 



n this year's voting for Homecoming king and 
queen candidates, some new and exciting 
changes were instituted. This year more 
campus organizations became involved and 
sponsored Homecoming candidates, such as 
Kappa Delta Pi Honorary and CAOS. This 
was also the first year for a king candidate 
runner-up for the title. The project also gave 
out free T-shirts for those who voted this year. 
The voting took place November 14 in the 
Education Building Lobby, and the average 
turn-out this year was 700 voters. 

Student Activities coordinator Laurie 
Johnston said, "I am really excited about all 
these candidates participating; also being a 
part of the community service projects, and 
giving back to the community." 

Johnston said this is typically a very 
stressful time of year, where there are a lot of 
mixed emotions from candidates with the 
work they have to do, but it is still "really fun." 

Chris Shamblin said, "I think we've had a 
better turn-out this year, and I think it's good 
that it is not all about the Greek 
organizations, but more about other 
organizations participating. It's good for 
students, and good for the college." 

King candidate Devin Nickerson said 
he wasn't sure he would be able to be a 
candidate at first, and was very excited when 
considered. "It's an exciting time and it's all 
good fun at Fairmont State." 

Once the king and queen winners were 
announced, 2001 's king and queen, Kevin 
Egidi and Lauren Rocini, were on hand to help 
crown the winners Saturday, Nov. 16, at 
halftime of the football game. President Dan

ould you ever eat sardines, hot 
sauce, and flour for a chance to win 
a trip to the Bahamas? Twelve FSC 
students were picked out of the 
audience to compete for a trip to 
the Bahamas at the "Outcast- the 
Original College Survival Game 
Show" held October 9, 2002 in the 
Turley Center Ballroom. This game 
was similar to the game show 
"Survivor," where the audience as 
well as team members vote each 
other off the show until there is one 
team member remaining. One of 
the contestants was going to win a 
cruise along with one audience 
member who had their ticket drawn 
out at the end of the game. 

Throughout the game, 
audience members voted 
contestants off until there were only 
two contestants left. Contestants 
participated in contests such as 
eating unknown substances like 
sardines and flour, lip synching and 
dancing to the audience, conducting 

a scavenger hunt, and a couple 
contestants even had to eat a can 
of Spam to stay in the game. 

Toni Riley was the final 
survivor and was the contestant 
who won a trip for two to the 
Bahamas. The winning ticket 
drawn for the remaining cruise went 
to senior Robin Hickman. 

"Since I've never won 
anything in my life, I was so 
shocked I won the cruise. I've 
never been to the Bahamas before 
and I'm taking my twin sister with 
me," said Hickman. 

"This was a really fun event 
Student Government sponsored and 
I would really like to see more 
activities like this around campus. 
This was a fun game that involved 
both contestants and audience 
members and was a lot of fun to 
watch," said sophomore Ashley 



n January 16, FSC professor Dr. Judy 
Prozzillo Byers was named the 2003 
Professor of the Year. This is a very 
esteemed position, given to one West 
Virginia teacher who embodies the qualities 
of excellence, determination, and success 
in the field of education. Byers was 
selected out of a group that consisted of 
many teachers from both private and public 
West Virginian institutions. She was then 
chosen as one of five finalists to appear 
before a committee of 25 individuals, 
including former governor Cecil 

Byers said, "The interview process was 
very welcoming; the individuals made me 
feel very much at home. However, the 
conference table was so large that I felt as 
if I was going in to defend my dissertation." 

Byers was then selected as one of 
three final candidates along with Dr. James 
Arbogast, professor at the West Virginia 
University School of Medicine and Dr. John 
K. Cox, associate professor of history at 
Wheeling Jesuit University. 

Once selected as professor of the 
year, Byers received many congratulations 
and thanks. She was honored February 18 
with a reception in the Governor's mansion 
in Charleston, WV. She also received a 
special reception from fellow Language and 
Literature colleagues once she returned

"I am very humbled and I feel very 
blessed. I want to thank all of my students 
and colleagues for their support," said 

As a part of this honor, which was 
created in 1984 by Huntington attorney Ed 
Green to provide means of rewarding 
outstanding faculty in West Virginia, Byers 
has been asked to help create a video that 
will highlight the assets of Fairmont State 
College. Byers is looking forward to this 
project. She said, "I am very excited to 
show others all of the exciting things that 
Fairmont State College has to offer." Byers 
extended a special thanks to Language 
and Literature chairman Dr. Martin Bond 
and Provost Dr. Fred Fidura, both of whom 
were instrumental in Byers' nomination and 

The Professor of the Year program 
recognizes and rewards individuals for 
outstanding leadership, innovation, and 
creativity. In addition to this statewide 
honor, Byers was also named the very first 
Abelina Suarez Professor at Fairmont 
State College, an honor bestowed during 
the opening faculty meeting of the 2002- 
2003 academic year. The Suarez family 
created and funded the endowed 
professorship, which carries the title as well 
as a stipend award.

e Turley Center and the Ruth Ann 
Musick Library hosted a yearlong lecture 
series with speakers ranging from 
political consultants to short story writers 
to co-executive producers of a CNN 
broadcast. This series, sponsored by 
Fairmont State and WBOY-TV ran from 
September through March with plenty of 
opportunities for students to attend. 

Starting the list of nationally 
prominent speakers, in the fall was 
James Carville. Carville was Bill 
Clinton's political consultant during his 
rise to the 1992 presidency. Along with 
being named the Campaign Manager of 
the Year in 1993, Carville is also 
America's best-known political 
consultant. He currently serves as a co- 
host on CNN's "Crossfire," and is a writer 
and speaker as well. James Carville 
was on campus Tuesday, September 10, 
for those interested in politics. 

Columnist, author, commentator, 
co-host, and co-executive producer start 
out the resume of Robert D. Novak. As 
author of "Inside Report" and producer of 
the twice monthly newsletter, "Evans- 
Novak Political Report," Novak seems to 
have a full plate. Being a CNN 
commentator, where he co-hosts "Evans, 
Novak, Hunt and Shields" and appears 

on and co-executive produces CNN's 
"Capital Gang" is enough to fill up any 
dessert tray. Novak was slated at the 
Turley Center Tuesday, September 24 to 
speak to the FSC community. 

Political names are not the only 
ones to hit the lecture list. Cleve Jones 
presented his information Monday, 
October 14 in the Turley Center. In 1985, 
Jones had the inspiration to hatch the 
idea of the NAMES Project AIDS 
Memorial Quilt. One year later and after 
the death of a close friend, Jones took 
his idea to the public. In 1987, the quilt 
first appeared across the Capital Mall in 
Washington, D.C. and has grown since 
then to include 15,000 panels. 

Wrapping up the fall lectures was 
scholar Charles Johnson. Johnson is a 
scholar of African-American literature as 
well as a short story writer and novelist. 
His writing abilities gained Johnson 
prominence with his novel Middle 
Passage, which later won the National 
Book Award in 1990. Johnson not only 
writes but he is also a cartoonist, and he 
brought his knowledge and expertise to 
FSC Tuesday, November 5.

of State Ken Hechler, guest

commencement ceremony, 
joined President Dan Bradley, 
Provost Fred Fidura and a 
capacity crowd of faculty, family 
members and friends in the Joe 
Retton Arena of the Feaster 
Center to congratulate the new 

Hechler left the graduating 
seniors with a memorable image: 
after claiming to have prepared 
the shortest commencement 
speech in history, he sang two 
songs about the pride and 
compassion of West Virginians. 
George Daughtery accompanied 
Hechler on guitar. 

Senior class 
representative Deanna Marsh 
gave a more traditional speech to 
the 300 graduates participating in 

the ceremony, as she compared the 
transition of a college student to that 
of a butterfly, emerging from its 
cocoon. Marsh said that FSC acted 
as a cocoon, allowing her and her 
classmates the safety and 
reassurance they needed to grow 
into their roles as productive 
members of the working world. 

Dr. Bradley said that the two 
happiest days of the year on campus 
are graduation days, and that the 
students wouldn't likely forget this 
ceremony, thanks to Hechler's 
entertaining address and serenade. 
Bradley said, "I think it's amazing 
just how far anyone comes between 
the ages of 1 8 and 22. All of our 
students have changed a great deal 
in the four or five years they have 
been with us."

wo weeks after the first major 
snowstorm of the 21 st century, 
Fairmont was still attempting to dig 
out. The effects of the storm were 
felt for months as people, 
businesses, and school districts, 
city officials, and utility companies 
recovered from the storm. 

Poor road conditions 
prompted Gov. Bob Wise to enact a 
state of emergency. Many counties 
closed school for the entire week. 
Colleges and universities all over 
the state, including FSC and WVU, 
were closed Feb. 1 7 and 1 8. 

Unfortunately bad roads 
weren't the only danger 
accompanying the foul weather. 
FSC student Trisha Perkins lost her 
life due to the storm. Also, 
aluminum canopies at several gas 
stations collapsed under the weight 
of so much snow, trapping cars 


FSC's Director of Facilities 
Larry Lawrence said the cost of 
the storm for FSC was still being 
totaled. Physical plant employees 
attempted to move away the snow 
worked straight through Feb. 17 
and 1 8, the days that the campus 
was closed. The employees 
worked 1 2-hour shifts in teams of 
two or three shoveling, plowing, 
sprinkling de-icing materials on 
sidewalks and stairs. Even 
President Bradley and his wife 
Cheri earned their keep by helping 
serve dinner in the Dining Hall.

which consisted of about 40 pieces. Some interesting entries that

ven the poor voter turnout didn't 
'dampen the spirits of the newly elected 
FSC Student Government officers. 
Coming off a victorious election win, the 
trio was full of enthusiasm while 
discussing their plans for the FSC 

President Carrie Hupp beat 
competitor Josh Schrader by only 1 4 
votes, while vice president Vanessa 
George won out over MarcieCox. The 
two women ran on the same ticket. 
Treasurer Scott Riley was the only 
member of the opposing ticket; his 
competition was Olivia Johnston. 

"I'm excited, but relieved," Hupp 
said, adding that she knew the election 
results would be close. At the same time, 
she was quite dismayed about the low 
voter turnout. Only 255 students out of a 
student body of 7,000 voted during the 
two-day election. "It was sad," said 
George adding, "last year (about) 500 
people voted." 

They have come up with several 
ideas to work on, many of which should 
help improve what they see as a big 
problem on campus: a lack of 
communication. Hupp would like to see a 
campus directory, complete with phone 
numbers and addresses, compiled and 

produced. This would give students 
better access to one another. "Even for 
teachers to find students," Hupp added. 

Riley believes the directory would 
serve a dual purpose. He said it could be 
used in mass mailing, which would alert 
students, staff and faculty to upcoming 
events around campus. At a recent 
Student Government meeting, Scott said 
they talked about the need to disseminate 
information to the campus community in a 
more efficient manner. 

"Right now we have flyers and the 
information booth, but still tons (of 
students) don't' know (about events)." 
Riley said he believes both methods are 
not used enough by the student body. 

Even though Riley did not share a 
ticket with Hupp and George, he is 
certain the three of them will work well 
together. "Everyone has to work together 
regardless of who won," he said. "I don't 
see any problem. We were all friends 
before, and in Student Government 

The new administration began its 
reign with the Earth Day celebration at

^f arth Day 2003 was a big 
success. There were a variety 
of activities for students to 
share in such as shuffleboard, 
racketball and tug of war. 
STAND even brought "Annie" 
a wild hawk, for students to pet 
and learn about. Different 
organizations set up booths for 
students to take part in. Earth 
Day really gave students a 
chance to interact with one 
another in a healthy 
environment. Events like this 
give students a chance to 
become involved with one 
another and look into the 
organizations that offered 
activities for students to 
participate in. 

Freshman Dan Hawkins 
said, "I think it was a nice set of 
activities and a chance for 
people to get closer together." 

Earth Day wouldn't be 
complete without games. The 
quad was filled with different 
events such as egg toss and 
the recycling relay. All the 
games helped demonstrate 
that you can have fun without 
hurting the environment at the 
same time. 

Earth Day at Fairmont 
State may only be one day but 
Earth Day should be year 
'round for everyone. Be sure 
to take care of our Wild and 
Wonderful West Virginia. 



/ore than 570 students received 
degrees as part of Fairmont State's 
Spring Commencement ceremony, which 
was held on Saturday, May 1 in the Joe 
Retton Arena ot the Feaster Center. A 
notabie first was the graduation of 1 1 
students who received master's of art's 
in teaching degrees and three who 
received master's of science in criminal 
justice in conjunction with Marshall 
University in Huntington. In 2003-2004, 
FSC will offer its own master's degree 

Dr. Hazo W. Carter Jr., President 
of West Virginia State College in 
Institute, was the commencement 
speaker. Carter was appointed the ninth 
president of WVSC in 1 987. Prior to 
coming to West Virginia, he served as 
President and Professor of Education at 
Philander Smith College in Little Rock, 
Arkansas for four years. A native of 
Nashville, Tennessee, Carter holds a 
Bachelor of Science degree in English 
from Tennessee State University in 
Nashville; a Master of Science degree in 
Journalism from the University of Illinois 
Champaign-Urbana; and a Doctor of 
Education degree, with a major in Higher 
Education Administration, from George 
Peabody College for Teachers of 
Vanderbilt University in Nashville. In his 
address, Carter encouraged the students 
to persevere in all their efforts, but to 

take timeout to enjoy and appreciate the little 
things life has to offer. 

Provost Fred Fidura and President 
Dan Bradley presided over the ceremony, 
assisted by Board of Governors chairman 
Stephen Brooks. The 2003 William A. Boram 
Award winner, Dr. Carolyn Chrislip-Tacy, 
served as mace bearer, leading the procession 
of faculty in full academic regalia as they 
proceeded into the arena. Graduating student 
Jarod Kabulski gave the senior address. 

A bittersweet highlight of the 
ceremony was the graduation of David Brian 
Davis, 30, who walked across the stage to 
receive his diploma with the aid of canes, 
drawing a standing ovation from the crowd. 
Davis was injured in a car accident in 1 993, 
while he was a student at West Virginia 
University. Following his extensive hospital 
stays and grueling rehabilitation, he transferred 
to Fairmont State, where he accrued over 1 70 
credit hours on his way to earning degrees in 
both business administration and information 

President Bradley told students in his 
address that perseverance and patience will 
profoundly affect the lives of those around 
them, and that "Graduation is evidence that if 
you meet a challenge... you can achieve your 

Following the traditional singing of the 
school alma mater, the graduates were sent 
out into the world that rainy May afternoon to 
change the world — changes that would come 
by degrees. 


airmont State ended their 2002-2003 
f J f season of sports with a respectable showing. 

^*~^/SWf The Falcons were competitive with their 
m ff opponents in practically every sporting event, 

with many Falcons receiving honors for their 
outstanding performances. Remarkably, the Falcon cheerleading 
squad captured their third straight national title and captured the 
WVJAC title yet again. In womens golf Ann Powroznik received 
medalist honors at the Glenville State Invitational and at the 
Fairmont State Invitational where the lady Falcons won first 
place. Also, Powroznick was named the WVIAC Player of the 
Year. In football, senior linebacker Josh Ison received All- 
American honors. Ison was a selection to the 1 st Team All- 
Northeast Region. In womens volleyball senior Cheyanne 
Stanley was named to the All-WVIAC Tournament Team. These 
are just a few of the individuals who have elevated sports at 
Fairmont State College to a competitive and fun level. Falcon 
sports participants gave it their best this past year to bring all of 
their fans both pride and enjoyment.

Individuals rack up serious honors 

The Falcons ended another season with a win, racking up a 20-1 7 victory 
over the visiting WVU-Tech.This was their eighth straight season to be ended 
with a victory. The Falcons also defeated West Virginia State on Falcon soil 
and bested Fairfield University at the start of the season. These wins weren't 
the only high points of the season; several players achieved national recognition 
as well. Senior linebacker Josh Ison was named to the third team on Don 
Hansen's Football Gazette NCAA Division II All-American Team, holding the 
honor as only the fourth player from Fairmont State to attain an Ail-American 
honor, and one of only three players from the West Virginia Conference to 
receive the honors. In addition, Ison, along with three other defensive players 
were named to the All-West Virginia Conference first-team unit. Senior lineman 
Damion Graham, junior lineman Damian Birch, and senior linebacker Courtney 
Johnson were the other outstanding players. Graham and Johnson are repeat 
members of the first team. Junior tackle Shane Davis and senior linebacker/ 
safety Corey Hoppe were awarded the honor of being on the second team. 
Davis was named to the second-team offense while Hoppe was named to the 
second-team defense. Named for honorable mention were senior receiver 
Germaine Johnson, junior offensive tackle Steve Tritapoe, sophomore 
cornerback Jeremiah Ferell, and sophomore free safety Isaac Weaver. Receiving 
honorable mention on special teams were Germaine Johnson and junior punter 
Jamie Rickard. Also receiving special mention were senior running back Khalil 
Anthony and junior linebacker Eddie Smith.

Dominating the competition 

Fairmont State's cheerleaders continued their dominance in the West Virginia 
Conference on March 6, 2003 at the Charleston Civic Center, claiming the 
league's annual competition for an unprecedented 14th time. 

The conference title was the third in a row for the Falcons and the squad's 14th in 
the last 16 years. 

In addition to their conference championship, the Fairmont State squad also 
captured the UCA All-Girls Division II national championship in Florida in January. 
The national championship was also their third in a row and fourth in Fairmont 
State's history. The Falcon cheerleaders have won the national title in 1995, 
2001 , 2002 and 2003. 

The Falcons had three individuals, Jessica Mongold, Kylie Huggins and Julie 
Drelick, selected to the 13-member All-West Virginia Conference team. Mongold 
was a repeat member of the first-team squad. 

The Falcon cheerleaders are coached by second-year head coach Dee Johnson.

Setting sights on a brighter future 

At the 2003 WVIAC/Bluegrass Mountain swim meet, the Falcon 
swim teams had some great individual performances to cap off a 
season that allowed the entire program to set their sighta on a brighter 

In the overall standings, both teams placed 4th, and received 
outstanding efforts from the following: Toni Riley, 2nd place 100 
Breaststroke & 3rd place in the 200 Breaststroke; Michelle Wells, 5th 
place in the 100 Butterfly; Rod Hunte, 1st place 200 Breaststroke; 
Howard Hunte, 3rd place 200 Backstroke; Nick Colberg, 2nd place 
200 Butterfly; Kamil Cepelak, 4th place 200 Butterfly. 

Although this year the Falcons just missed out on sending 
swimmers to Nationals, Coach Pat Snively had nothing but praise for 
his team. He stated, "I thought that we did fairly well with the lack of 
numbers that we had. Obviously, we would like to win it all every 
year, but we'll make a strong push next year and build on that 
success." (Contributed by George Lasse)

Seventeen lettermen step up to the plate 

Fairmont State was picked third in the West Virginia Conference's Northern Division in the annual 
coaches' preseason poll. The team returned every starter from a 2002 squad which finished 22-16, but 
narrowly missed the postseason after having made three straight trips there. A total of 17 lettermen returned, 
including two first-team AII-WVC selections in junior second baseman George Laase and senior pitcher Tim 

Ten seniors, most of whom were in head coach Ray Bonnett's first recruiting class when he officially 
took over as baseball coach, made up the nucleus of FSC's squad. Three of those 10 also earned some all- 
league honors in 2002. First baseman Jay Earl batted .341 with eight doubles, four triples, one homer and 
27 RBI. Third baseman Zack Travinski batted .397 with a team-high 10 doubles, four triples and two homers. 
Shortstop Dylan Hetzel led both the WVC and the nation in NCAA Division II in 2002 in stolen bases: He 
was successful on 45-of-49 steal attempts in 33 games for an average of 1 .36 steals per game. The 
remaining senior starters for the Falcons were Jim Redmond at catcher, Pat Parker in left field and Nick 
Hedrick and Josh Pearson, who split time in right field. Luis Cordeo, a junior transfer from NAIA Bluefield 
College, VA, handled the center field duties. Cordeo was also FSC's closer on the mound this spring. 

"I feel very fortunate to have such a good bunch," said Bonnett. "Our seniors have stuck with the 
program and they've believed in what we're doing here.The administration, including Athletic Director Dave 
Cooper and the instructors here at Fairmont State, and the people of the community have also been very 
supportive. You need that kind of support to have a successful program." 

The Falcons had an impressive group of assistants this season: Longtime assistant coach Rick Wade 
was joined by newcomers Jason Graham, George Yanchak and Joe Price. 

The 6th-ranked Falcons saw the season come to a heartbreaking end against No. 3 West Virginia 
Wesleyan in a 10-inning thriller, 5-4. A bases-loaded suicide squeeze with two strikes and one out gave WV 
Wesleyan the extra-inning win. Fairmont State's season ended with a record of 21-14.

Put up a respectable season 

The Falcons put up a respectable season, finishing in 
the middle of the pack (sixth out of eleven teams) at the 
WVIAC tournament in Charleston. Also, they concluded their 
away season with a winning record of 6-5 in the WVIAC. 
They are a young team, losing just one senior — Steve 
Roberts. Roberts was seeded at the #6 position in singles at 
the WVIAC tournament and supplied two of the team's eight 
points. Under Coach Ken Miller, these athletes had a fun 
season complete with good attitudes and competitive tennis.

^T^Scliool . Science 

he School of Science & Mathematics encompasses the Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, 
Mathematics, Physics/Physical Science and Science Education programs. Our primary mission is to serve the 
higher educational needs of our undergraduate students; especially those interested in pursuing careers in the pure 
and applied sciences, mathematics and secondary science education. 

The School offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer 
Security, Forensic Science and Mathematics as well as Bachelor of Arts discipline-specific degrees in Secondary 
Science Education. We also offer students pre-professional programs in Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Pre- 
Physical Therapy. Through our course contributions to the Liberal Studies program, we provide the opportunity for 
non-science majors to acquire an appropriate level of scientific literacy, including an appreciation of the process of 
the science and its role in societal issues. 

We aspire to student-centered, innovative teaching, accompanied by interactive learning technologies in 
order that students may achieve the highest level proficiency in quantitative interpretation, critical assessment of 
information and effective communication. Our intent is to foster long-term economic security by giving students the 
skills to grow culturally and professionally throughout their lives. 

The Biology faculty are actively engaged in research, with a focus on student-centered learning experiences. 
Students have conducted field research on such topics as acid mine drainage in the West Fork River and the ecology of slime molds 
in Costa Rica, Mexico, and New Zealand. They have assisted in research on breast cancer cell growth regulation, and genetic 
markers for specific coronary diseases. Faculty members have received significant external funding for research, instrumentation 
and curriculum development from such sources as the National Science Foundation (NSF) and NASA. Many majors participate in 
the educational activities of the student-organized environmental awareness group STAND (Students Taking Action in Nature's 

The Chemistry program offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Chemistry and Forensic Science. The majority of the faculty 
members are actively engaged in undergraduate-based research and curriculum development. One current project involves the 
development of an electronic textbook in quantum chemistry. They have acquired important sources of external funding for these 
efforts, including that of the NSF. Students have presented research results at a number of professional meetings including the 
West Virginia Academy of Sciences and the American Chemical Society (ACS). The program has a very active student chapter of 
the ACS that has received national recognition. 

The Computer Science program offers a Bachelor of Science degree, and was the recent recipient of a $300,000 three-year 
federal grant that will enable it to offer a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Security. The monies will be utilized to hire and 
additional faculty member with a Ph.D. in computer science, equip a new computer security laboratory and develop a new curriculum. 
The Mathematics Program offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and has an important role in the support of the 
Bachelor of Arts Education degrees in 5-8 and 9-12 Mathematics. The Mathematics program has a large service role to many 
programs especially those in the Schools of Technology and Business. Additionally, it provides courses for all FSC graduates 
through the Liberal Studies Program. 

The Physics/Physical Science program makes significant service contributions to a number of areas including Chemistry, 
Biology, the School of Technology and the Liberal Studies Program. Additionally, the program supports the Bachelor of Arts 
Education degrees in 9-12 Physics and General Science. 

The Science Education program plays a pivotal role in the secondary education programs in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and 
General Science. The Program Coordinator is responsible for insuring that each program remains current on national content 
standards. The Coordinator teaches the physical science content courses for elementary pre-service students and supervises 
secondary education pre-service students during their teaching activities in the public schools. 

The School of Science & Mathematics graduates are very successful in gaining employment in their chosen discipline and 
achieving admittance to excellent professional and graduate schools. This reflects positively on the quality and relevance of their 
educational experiences at FSC. 





School C 



airmont State College School of Education has changed over many 
seasons from a "Normal School" to a College of Excellence. Since its inception 
as a private teacher training institution in 1865, Fairmont State has maintained 
an outstanding and relevant teacher preparation program. Through continual 
self-reflection, assessment, and collaboration with public school practitioners, 
the program has evolved in purpose and philosophy. The overall theme 
evolved from the teacher as "purveyor of information" and "manager of 
learning" to an "informed decision-maker in a bias-free classroom." The current 
theme of Fairmont State's School of Education is "The Informed Decision- 
Maker: Impacting Tomorrow Through Education." 

The mission of Fairmont State's undergraduate teacher preparation 
program is to prepare teachers to make instructional decisions based upon a 
strong foundation of knowledge, skills, and dispositions. As teachers grapple 
with minute-to-minute and day-to-day decisions in the "information age," they 
must be prepared to make wise, informed choices from a range of options, 
knowing that their decisions will impact tomorrow through the education they

and a record-breaking school enrollment at Fairmont State College. There 
is a growing knowledge of the ways in which local, regional, national, and 
international cultures blend and blossom. The School of Language and 
Literature has been through many changes, especially with technology. 
The School of Language and Literature has made distance learning 
opportunities possible through WebCT, an online course management 
system. The School has emphasized community service and citizenship 
applications for both faculty and students, incorporating this element in to 
many courses. Literature and languages have shaped and communicate 
the meanings we live and love at Fairmont State College.

his year Fairmont State College School of Nursing celebrated its 
33rd year of NLNAC Nursing Accreditation. Many changes in the nursing 
program have occurred over the years, and one of the most recent has 
been the admission of twenty additional students into the program. The 
increased enrollment was accomplished through a contract between 
United Hospital Center, located in Clarksburg, WV, and Fairmont State 
College. The contract was developed as a strategy for the hospital to hire 
more nurses and combat the nursing shortage. The additional students 
also resulted in the need for additional faculty as well. Therefore, four 
new highly qualified faculty members were hired to perform clinical 
instruction at United Hospital Center. 

Another recent change that occurred to facilitate distance education 
to the students in Clarksburg was the development of a SMART 
classroom. This classroom provides students with televised learning at 
the Clarksburg Caperton Center as classes are held live on the Fairmont 
campus. This system also allows for constant communication and 
interaction between students and faculty on the two campuses. Faculty 
and students are excited and enthusiastic about the new challenges 
involved with this type of learning and look forward to the opportunity of 
using the classroom in the future.

J^he School of Technology at Fairmont State College offers practical knowledge 
and technical skills for high demand careers in Aviation Technology, Engineering 
Technology, Graphics Technology, and Family/Consumer Sciences. The School also 
provides high quality regional workforce training and outreach services. Programs 
and services are housed in three locations: two on main campus and one off- 

Engineering technology is a professional field of study in which knowledge of 
mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering techniques is applied to satisfy 
human needs. The focus of engineering technology is on application and is 
characterized by an approximately 50/50 mixture of theory and practice. While 
disciplines of study are the same, the primary difference between engineering and 
engineering technology is the degree of application. Engineering technology is less 
theoretical and provides an educational background that is rich in real-world 
applications. Generally, the career emphasis of engineering is on research and 
design while the career emphasis of engineering technology is on designing, 
drawing, constructing, producing, installing, maintaining, and operating systems. 

Family/Consumer Sciences programs are located on the ground floor of the 
new Education, Health Careers, and Consumer Sciences Building. Family/Consumer 
Sciences is a multifaceted discipline that combines management, knowledge, and 
skills to improve the quality of individual and family life. Programs within this 
discipline integrate knowledge and practices about the family and environments 
surrounding the family. 

The School of Technology also offers specialized cutting-edge industrial 
workforce development programs. Specialized courses have been developed in a 
variety of areas such as statistical process control (SPC), nuclear density 
instrumentation, computer aided drafting (AutoCAD and MicroStation), 
programmable logic controllers (PLC's), aircraft avionics/electronics, aircraft sheet 
metal, non-destructive testing, musical instrument making, blueprint reading/ 
interpretation, aviation and industrial safety, aerospace industry orientation, high 
performance composite structural repair, OSHA abatement and compliance 
procedures, fire training, construction materials, construction project management, 
surveying techniques, soil mechanics, materials testing for technicians, child care 
culinary practices, food procurement methods, food sanitation methods, and 
industrial mathematics.

iversity is a way of life on FSCs campus, 
and that doesn't stop with just the faces. 
Organizations are a growing facet of 
college culture, where anyone could find 
some kind of group that makes them feel at home. 
Many think that the only options available are sororities 
w fraternities, but that is only the beginning. If you are 
' nstrumentally inclined, try out the marching band; if you 
ire a creative mind and a free spirit, what about CAOS; 
fyou are the brain of the crew, then there is the honors 
Programs and societies; and for the athletic at heart, there 
ire always intramural sports. Diversity is a way of life 
indas we go through our many phases of change, its 
^assuring to know that there is someone else out there, 
aking the same steps we are.

The 2003 Mound, with a press run of 1 , 1 00, was created by a student staff and printed by Herff Jones in 
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The 1 84 pages were submitted on disk using PC versions of Adobe PageMaker 7.0, 
Adobe Photoshop 6.0. Pamela Poling and Christina Skidmore served as Herff Jones Representatives and 
Linda Mauss as Customer Service Adviser. 

The theme was developed by Jessica Weekly and Beth Slusser. The opening and closing sections were 
designed by Jessica Weekly. Each of the other five sections were designed by Jessica Weekly, Derek 
Overfield and Justin VanSlyke. 

All copy was written by members of the Mound staff as well as members of The Columns staff. All copy 
was edited by the editor in chief. 

All portraits were taken by student photographer Natalie Price, Brian Wallace photographed all of the 
organizations featured, as well as various other events. FSC photographer John Piscitelli donated several 
hundred of his photos to the 2003 Mound. 

Designed by Jessica Weekly and Jessica McCullough, Herff Jones designer, the cover is Vista Custom 
embossed with Leathertex-Chestnut Brown cover material. Cover material covers 160 point board material. 
Theme design shows in orange ink and copper custom foil die with handtooled grain surrounding all elements. 
The 9x12 book was smyth-sewn, rounded and backed. 

The editorial content does not necessarily reflect the views of Fairmont State College, its administrators, 
faculty or the Mound staff. 

The Mound is distributed on campus at the beginning of the fall semester in 301 Jaynes Hall and is free to 
all full-time students. 

The Mound office is located in 30 le Jaynes Hall. The staff can be contacted at 367-4833. 

Special thanks to: John Piscitelli for graciously donating several hundreds of your fabulous photos, Editor 
in Chief of The Columns Brad Fox and several of your staff members: Daleen Berry, Brandy Garcia, Tosha 
Halstead, Amy Harris, George Laase, Katie Wilson, Amy Korcsmaros, and Michelle Wakeley for allowing us 
to use their stories, and Beth Slusser for sticking with me until July.
